Does it? Interesting. I’ll have to play around with that later. You mean you can actually control another user’s machine, with JAWS’s help, over TV?

 

Also, presumedly there’s a hotkey for exiting TV in fullscreen, or at least reducing it so you can exit it normally, but again… it’s not like I’ve had any practice with that just at present.

Jaws works over teamviewer, but I'm not sure how to exit the teamviewer session if you're in full screen apart from restarting the target machine.

If anyone has any hints on this let me know.

This is true. You can connect from Home to Pro just fine, though. RDP server isn’t available on 10 Home. This is why I was curious if JAWS would work with something like Teamviewer. I haven’t tested it yet, and may need to email VFO about it, but if you’re already using Home it seems almost pointless to upgrade to Pro just for RDP. I mean I’d do it, but only on my equipment. I do tech support for the parents, though, and I wouldn’t make them upgrade to Pro just so I can remote in if I didn’t have to.

Remote Desktop allows you to connect to your computer provided you know your home computer’s IP address.

You probably also have to set up port forwarding in your router to allow the connection and of course you have to make sure Remote Desktop is enabled for the computer you want to connect to.

If you don’t have a fixed IP address which for a home connection is likely you would have to set up something called a “dynamic DNS” which allows you to set up an easy to remember name and if your IP address changes the service will automatically update this so that the name you set up still works, below is a website with more information:

Subject: Now, sometimes I cannot convert to OCR an image PDF document

 

Hello List,

 

There are two ways to use the Jaws OCR to convert an image PDF file.

I have noticed a change when trying one way, the other still works.

 

I recently had to switch to a new hard disk. This meant I had to download and install: Windows 10 version 1809, the latest Jaws 2019 and Adobe Acrobat Reader DC v19.10.200.

 

Before this complete upgrade, I could open a PDF image file either as a Thunderbird attachment or by pressing ENTER on the PDF file in the directory tree. There was then a Yes/No prompt for Jaws to do the OCR of the document.

 

Now, there is no “alert empty document” message nor is there the prompt to do the OCR.

 

I get the Virtual cursor. It is a blank window but the Jaws plus page-down command gives: Start free trial.

 

When I turn off the Virtual cursor and start the OCR with

  Jaws plus space bar then o.

 

Pressing “d” (for a document), I get: OCR failed to start.

Pressing “w” (for a window), gives me the OCR converted text.

 

The PDF document is converted but,

On the right of some lines are these statements:

   Create PDF

   Edit PDF

   With Acrobat Pro DC

   Start free trial

 

The second way to convert PDF to text, still works. Highlight the PDF file in the directory tree or File Explorer,

the applications key has:    select “convenient OCR with Jaws”.

 

When I do an OCR of the window, the PDF and Pro DC message share the window. This seems to prevent Jaws from converting the PDF document.

 

How do I get rid of the start free trial with Acrobat Pro DC?

 

Thanks,

Peter T.

Jaws 2019 not giving background color in Excel 2016 or 2019

Russell Solowoniuk
 

Hi everyone,

 

I am trying to use Conditional formatting in both Excel 2016 and 2019. I choose to use a formula to decide which cells are formatted, choose cells in sheet 1 that do not equal cells in sheet 2, and choose to fill the cells matching the criteria with a red background fill. The conditional formatting is working, but using Jaws 2019, I have no way of knowing whether or not it is working, because Jaws reads “text color black, background color white” when I press Insert + F, and “Black on white” when I press Insert + 5 on cells that have different values. If I load NVDA and press Insert+ F on these cells, NVDA says “black on bright red background”.

 

Has anyone else noticed this? I am getting so frustrated with Jaws not being able to do basic things like this when a free screen reader like NVDA is able to do it with no problem!

 

Thanks for any feedback.

 

Russell

Advisory: JAWS announces "Microsoft Candidate UI" if typing with hardware keyboard input suggestions enabled in Windows 10 Version 1809

 

Hi all,

 

The following issue was brought up on another list and was subsequently confirmed:

 

If hardware keyboard input suggestions is turned on, JAWS will announce “Microsoft Candidate UI” when you type text.

 

To resolve this:

 

  1. Open Settings (Windows+I)/Devices/Typing.
  2. Go to hardware keyboard grouping and turn off “Show text suggestions as I type” option (Version 1803 will show it as a different option).

 

Cheers,

Joseph
